Thoughts? For about $200-250.

Not worth nearly that much unless you are in a very high-end market. Basically, putting the word Sport into the name of an 80s bike boom racer means it was at or near the bottom of the product line.

I am in the highest end market. It's hard finding a bike at a good price up in here!

If this was posted in a major city - Philly, NY, LA, etc, its a common price for brand name bikes. Its also 2-3X overpriced. You can probably do better for $250, but it looks pretty clean and probably not a bad deal at $100-$125.
